Periodontal Teeth Scaling is a major part of every hygiene appointment and allows our hygienists to reduce the plaque, tartar (calculus) and bacteria that may be residing on your teeth. At Northern Hills Dental, we employ two methods of scaling on your teeth, one of which is a traditional hand scaling tool, and the other requires using an ultrasonic water scaling device. The method used depends on your unique hygiene circumstances.
Our hygienists want to ensure that your teeth remain free of any build-up, and look healthy and beautiful all year round!
Early detection of Oral Cancer is vitally important in combating the disease. That is why we provide a complete oral cancer screening during each hygiene and scaling appointment.
Brushing with fluoride toothpaste is recommended at least twice a day to remove plaque and the remnants of food and drink from our teeth and gums. Flossing once a day is an essential practice to avoid gum disease and preventing tooth decay
Practicing the above oral hygiene habits are great ways to maintain proper oral health. But good habits alone will not remove all the plaque that builds up over time. This is why it is necessary to see your dentist and dental hygienist regularly to remove the plaque in order to effectively lower your risk of toothaches, cavities, periodontal disease, or even the loss of all your teeth. Our aim is to keep you smiling!
